Project Details

The Muni Metro Turnback Rail Rehabilitation Project will replace all worn rail from the Folsom Portal to Embarcadero Station. Approximately 3,600 linear feet (LF) of running rail and 1,060 LF of guard rail will be replaced as part of the project. The rail replacement work will take place this summer at the Muni Metro Turnback located underground at the tunnel entrance near the Embarcadero Station area from the Folsom Portal to Embarcadero Station. All of the work will take place underground but will still require several partial weekend shutdowns and train switchbacks of the N Judah and T Third lines between Embarcadero Station and Mission Rock Station. A substitute bus shuttle will provide bus bridge service in between.

The contract was awarded and the Notice to Proceed was issued on March 5, 2013. Construction on the Muni Metro Turnback Rail Project began in mid-July and will continue approximately through the summer. The construction will require up to five separate weekend shutdowns with “turnbacks” on the N Judah and T Third rail lines and substitute shuttle bus service between Mission Rock and Embarcadero stations.

These shutdowns would be in effect day and night Saturday and Sunday. Normal Metro service would resume on Monday morning, unless otherwise specified.During each shutdown, way finding signage and Customer Service Ambassadors will be on site at key locations to provide assistance.
